About Your Land Type

Land Falling in Two Directions

A cross fall is where the land slopes from corner to corner exaggerating the fall. This can be among the most challenging of sites for most designers, but, not for the Storybook design team.


True to our design principles when designing on a cross fall, we prefer to disturb the ground as little as possible, rather, we create a series of split levels as we sculpt the architecture to follow the land. We end up with a high character home that maintains closer contact with the land for more direct access to garden, decks, al frescoes and pool. Regardless of whether the cross fall is generally rising or falling, gentle or steep, our experienced and creative designers will provide an exciting and affordable solution reflecting your budget and wish list.
